Title: REPLY REQUIRED BEFORE ALLOWED TO CREATE A THREAD
Post by: Switz on January 09, 2008, 02:56:36 AM


>>> New members must do a reply before being allowed to create a new thread. <<<

You can reply to this thread to say hello.

We had something of a problem with spam for a while, both in topics and (more annoyingly) as PMs.
It's a problem of balance, do we put in an extra layer of security, probably wait for Mod approval on registering, or for the first few posts, or come up with some other scheme?

So we came up with another scheme.

When you register you are put into the membergroup "newbie".

The newbie can reply to an existing thread, and can send 1 personal message, (the minimum I can make it).
Once the newbie makes 1 reply they are upgraded to "new poster" and can reply as much as they like and can make their own topics.


Lets see how this new scheme works out.

I've been creeping this site harder than stalkers on facebook, so I thought I'd finally speak up.
I'm pretty sure I'm not a robot, and I have parts on the way (for my project, not for me), and I plan on starting a build log soon.

I am planning on having a pretty awesome build, so look out. But don't hold your breath I ordered parts only 2 days ago.

Also as a side note, I'm from Canada so I will not be using the word "earthed,"   ever. It will be "grounded." So thats the translation.

Another note here, thanks to Drew for this sweet site.

The name's Adrian and I'm an archaeologist. I have a tablet and it hasn't worked for a while. The other day I got an email from one of the lists I'm on and it was a microscopist saying that he'd been using a tablet to outline cells and was thinking of trading up for a cintiq. Anyway, I'm like.. 'what's a cintiq, I wonder?' Had a quick look. WOW that's cool... I want one... but HOW MUCH!! Then I thought 'I bet I could make one of those, I have an old laptop screen and a tablet why not put the two together.' Then after some searching I found bongofish. This is totally wack. You guys rock and share my aim. I now have my tablet working, an eye on a monitor (cos of the hassles related to laptop screens) and I'm ready to start my build log.

rock on.

Lovely. Seems like Switz has been fiddling with posts again. My message cut off at "Welcome, Adrian." Switz has once again failed to resist the urge to add that colorful bit at the end.

Cute.

I'm so glad we've got moderators here to keep an eye on things and make sure that the discussions stay mature. Makes the forum such a fun place to contribute, you know?

Anyway, let's all wish Switz the best of luck in dealing with his issues that need working out and hope he can stop projecting them onto others. People are people, dude. We don't judge here, just come on out of the closet. No need to bottle up those unrequited feelings.

Peace out.

I would have assumed that it was against rules, yes. And I would definitely have guessed that changing a member's comments like that would be against quite a few other forum rules.

And lookee lookee, he's at it again. Now he's got "me" saying in that post that I'm about to be banned. That's cute, but rather redundant— because if another one of my messages gets screwed with I can assure you that there will be no need to ban me.  ;)

Chems, catch you on the outside.  ;D

Chems:     Think you'll ever get out of here?

Andre:       Sure. When I got a long white beard
      and about three marbles left
      rolling around upstairs.

Chems:     Tell you where I'd go. Zihuatanejo.

Andre:      Zihuatanejo?
            
Chems       Mexico. Little place right on the
      Pacific. You know what the Mexicans
      say about the Pacific? They say it
      has no memory. That's where I'd
      like to finish out my life, Red. A
      warm place with no memory. Open a
      little hotel right on the beach.
      Buy some worthless old boat and fix
      it up like new. Take my guests out
      charter fishing. You know, a place like that, I'd
      need a man who can get things.

Andre:       Jesus, Chems. I couldn't hack it on
      the outside. Been in here too long.
      I'm an institutional man now. Like
      old Naspc was.

Chems:      You underestimate yourself.

Yup. One of mine too. I also love the fact that the evil, despicable Captain Hadley is played by Clancy Brown, who also does the voice of Mr. Krabbs on Spongebob Squarepants (Is that show popular in the UK as well?)

But, for the sake of a clean board ... Hi everyone!  I draw with the fantastic tablet nature of my laptop.  Unfortunately, the screen is going bad so it's not fantastic anymore, and I came here looking for more ideas.

Nah. It's probably just that you're not used to hearing it in the USA because Americans aren't often described as such.  ;D

Or maybe you're thinking of those beer commercials with the two cutout guys going "Brilliant. Brilliant!" with British accents.

Post by: AndreZX on March 15, 2008, 02:56:29 AM
Really? You didn't like it?

I enjoyed it, but I actually never played much past Dr. Steinman there. Didn't really capture my interest, which a game really has to do these days to keep me playing it past the first day. No time anymore. I've got a small stack of games that I've been meaning to play that aren't even out of the shrink wrap!

I've been totally immersed in Super Smash Bros Brawl since it came out Sunday morning though. Any fans here?

Well...finally got the tablet in my hot little hands...but something seems confusing to me about it, perhaps you folks can help clear up my confusion. I managed to get a tablet the same as which Drew used in his build (the UD-1212-R). For the life of me, I cannot spot where the tablet draws it's power from. It's got a rocker switch to turn the power on and off sitting right next to a serial I/O port. So how does this model of tablet get it's power?   ???

Thanks

It uses a custom serial cable made by Wacom that has a plug input.  If it did not come with one, you can get one at www.coolgraphicstuff.com

Looking forward to interacting with you guys on my build. Just scored three 15" LCDs off Craigslist (two Compaqs and one Sylvania; the Sylvania has an external power supply, too!), and have an Intuos2 on the way that I won yesterday on eBay.

Still have a bit of reading to do on the forums before I get started, but my intent is well-defined: my girlfriend and I are working on a story for an sci-fi/comedy animation series—she writes and sketches a little bit and I animate and do dialogue a bit. So due to our complete lack of a budget, and the fact that I'll be animating the thing entirely by myself, I'm looking to optimize my workflow in every way I can think of.

I was actually just a few days from having saved up the necessary $1000 to buy a Cintiq 12wx. What a sexy little piece of engineering, with the exception of that price tag. But at some point (was it Digg?) I saw a story about Drew (http://www.engadget.com/2006/11/16/uk-artists-builds-diy-wacom-cintiq-tablet-for-under-200/), and well... What can I say? "Where's the fun in just buying something?" is definitely a question that resonates with me. So even though the 12WX was totally in my reach, and I'm totally tempted to just have one and start using it now, and I totally have like three 5-minute episodes ready to go...

...I'm goin' for glory, folks. 'Triptiq', here I come!

Edit: 'Triptiq' cause the main character's name is 'Trip', and also a play on the word triptych... well you guys get it. This is defintely a conglomeration of some effing SMART people. Cheers, -Sal

So don't get annoyed! coz i never touched that Soldering stuff! But I am passionate! :D

Hello, I'm new, and not a bot.

It will be a while before I get around to building a SimTiq.  So many projects, such little time.

My interests and background are in audio production and engineering, electronic music, sequencers and analogue synthesisers, and vintage / retro Macintosh computers.  I'm not a visual artist; any tablets I build will be for sh-ts and giggles, and possibly to act as controllers for audio software.  They will most likely be based on vintage Apple Powerbooks running anything from System 7 to OS X, and using ADB Wacoms.

I found this forum by Googling as I was thinking (again) about my long procrastinated Mac Tablet project.  Glad to be aboard.  I expect I'll be mostly lurking for a bit.

cheers,

DrB

Greetings and Salutations!

I'm a big DIY'er , and a amateur artist to boot!

I've been perusing Ebay for awhile for a BIG wacom to start my build.

Good luck to new builders!  Unless you're bidding against me, in which case, a pox on your internet connection!

About to start a new build, got a 1503fp on the way.

Am after a 12x12 now - is there any reason why the 12x12 is prefered over the 9x12?

Ahh, in that case I might go for a 9x12, as I intend to make a new case. Looking at your Mobygames, looks like there is a tiny bit of crossover :D

Hello this is my first 'reply' on this forum as the rules stated that new member need at least 3 post (of reply) before allowed to create new post. By the way I have a question to admin/moderator why I can't use yahoo as my email? After requesting activation mail three times, there's still no email send to my account, I've already check the spam folder and in box but still got no activation mail. Luckily I can use my gmail account  :)

After browsing around for almost 4 days, the idea of creating DIY cintiq is very interesting, as my saving still far from for fulfilling my dream 12" cintiq. But before I buy any 9x12 wacom and salvaging used 15" lcd (which is quite rare in here as many people still use CRT), I need to ask how much chance I have to re-assembling any wacom after dissecting it? Is it still be able to use in normal way? Right now I only have 4x5 sapphire (Graphire 2 CMMIW) that I rarely used. Perhaps I try the reflectiq instead until my money enough to buy all the requirements.

The wacom tablet, honestly, the easiest part of the build.  My intuos is a single large PCB with all the chips and stuff on the one panel, encased in the plastic shell.  The monitor is the real difficult part, as well as fitting it all together in a new case.

Hey  Bongofishers,

this is Alex from Berlin, Germany. Since I saw it in a TV-Spot, I was preatty hot about getting a Cintiq. When I finally heared about the price, I was little peplex and sure that I'll never gonna own one in this life...  :'(

Now I finally found you guys and the idea of building myself a "GhettoCintiq" from some crap just blew me away. In fact, this is even a hundred times cooler than just hit a store and get one (even if there wouldn't be a chance anyway ::)). I have some experience in building diy-elecrical stuff like OBD-devices and various Guitareffekts and -shieldings, so I guess with your posted knowledge I should make it.

I already read myself through most of the main stuff, even if the language makes it hard for me to get everything right, especially around some details with the led-mod's. But I'll keep on trying.
Cintiq-Baby, here I come.

So long,
Alex

Hello!  My wife is a professional artist, so when I stumbled into three Wacom UD1212R tablets (no pens or cables, unfortunately) I thought I'd build her a tablet with screen since I could barely pry her away from the Wacom Cintiq and Modbook booths at San Diego ComicCon.  I will be picking up a Westinghouse LCM-15v5 later today, and as soon as I can come up with a power cable and pen for the Wacom I will start a build log--I can't start until I know if any of these tablets are in working condition.  While I haven't seen any build logs for this monitor the LumenLab LCD Monitor Database says "Great LCD, strips easily, AG does as well. High contrast, no ghosting" which makes me hopeful--ideally it will be jitter-free as well.

I finally found your forum! Hopefully I can find some good information on how to make my own modtiq tablet so I can draw more comfortably. Wacom and Hanvon tablets are fun to use but they can be awkward too when you try tilting them and expecting the monitor to tilt along with them.

As much as I love design, illustration, 3D and music production I also love tinkering. Most recent thing I've built is my own computer desk. A very large desk with a backboard that I mounted my 2 20" cinema displays on. One of the other neat tricks of said desk is how the finished project will manage wires...grommets and cable tamers everywhere...seriously it's a zoo...2 down, 1 more to go...Yipee!

Why i joined BongoFish. Said one late night last week, what would happen if I put my wacom innards into a laptop, imac enclosure or otherwise and created something like a cintiq? Did a search and Drews project and log came up. Another idea hit me and then there was Wei's. So here I am, first set of parts on the way to build a touch screen LCD enclosure to be used to control a G5 PPC tower that is now being used as a server/storage device since getting my MAC Pro. Wanted something I could lay flat on the desk and not have to use a keyboard or mouse for.

More on the second project in a second post...Cheers

Doin' the 3 posts thingy.

Seems like my situation is very typical, nothing cool to brag about.

A while back, I got a Graphire3  6x8 but quickly found out that I couldn't draw using that thing. How can you draw without looking at your hand? Cintiq seems the only solution.

Going through your site and looking at my options right now. Options like using old laptops (screen only+driver or full laptop) or getting a bigger Wacom (I mean suitable for 15 inch lcd) through ebay. Having a smaller "active area" than the monitor does not seem to be very useful. Well, you will have to go back and forth between the mouse and the pen if your menus are outside the active area and... I have only one right hand to hold the mouse or the pen.

Post by: bernard on June 14, 2009, 06:36:25 AM
few questions for a kickstart

1- What are the chances that the LCD parts would simply be too thick, there is no way to know in advance?
2- The "led-based" backlights, are there really LCD monitors out there with that technology. Or isn't that very recent stuff only? (read $$$)
3- Also what about the resolution of the LCD -- is 1024x768 an ok resolution for a 15 inch (9x12 active area) monitor? Sounds low to me. All the used 15 inch LCDs I have found so far are 1024x768.


Title: Re: READ THIS FIRST, OR YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO POST
Post by: Drewid on June 14, 2009, 02:55:36 PM
No Real way to know in advance except by going for a monitor that's already been used sucessfully.  HOWEVER it's only oin bigger monitors (20" ish ) That it seems to be a problem - so far.

LED backlights are fairly recent and come in a couple of flavours.  Those wth the LEDs along the edge and even newer ones with an LED panel behind the whole screen

1024x768 is OK  I wouldn't like to go any smaller though.



Title: Re: READ THIS FIRST, OR YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO POST
Post by: bernard on June 17, 2009, 07:29:54 AM
I am gathering info here and there to see if I it is feasible for me to attempt a build (will of course share the experience).

I already had a broken laptop (but with a working screen). LCD Panel is a 14.1 inch Samsung LTN141P4-L01, 1400x1050 (SXGA+) resolution, 2 channel LVDS. It is 5mm thick with the backlight plane included.

I think a 14.1 inch can work nice for me with a 9x12 even if the display area is a little bit smaller. Would still be a dream Cintiq clone to me.

I have sent a few questions to people selling LCD controllers - *if* I am "lucky" (i.e. if my odd SXGA+ resolution is not directly supported), I might have to "play" with the controller code. Which, in theory, means I could also change other parts of the code like the "OSD" or whatever (maybe display something cool at power up or whatever). Anyway, I'll stop dreaming for a moment ;D and wait for answers instead. :P

The laptop already has an inverter board but I do not have the datasheet for it so it is almost useless (unless the interface to these boards are standard?). The main LCD monitor circuit has to "control" it (switching on/off, brightness level, etc.). I think I saw a spec talking about using "SMBus" as the protocol to control certain parameters but not sure.

Depending if I find a cheap & easy solution for the inverter or not, I might look at a LED-based solution (retrofitting leds where the CCFL lamp is located re-using the same thin diffuser).
Frankly I prefer playing with leds than with high-voltage CCFL devices.


Title: Re: READ THIS FIRST, OR YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO POST
Post by: Gem on June 17, 2009, 11:21:39 PM
I wouldn't wory too much about the thickness, most of these wacoms pick up the pen quite far off the sensor, and some I hear can be modified via firmware to read even greater distances.

There are quite a few notebooks and screens on the market right now using LEDs, and the cost isn't too much different.

Typically there are two types of LED backlights, screens and arrays.  Screens (a rectangular mesh of LCDs) will yield you a very nice brightness rating and nice even back lighting, but they hog battery faster than CCFL (no problem if you aren't running this thing on battery) and are way more expensive.  Arrays (just a strip of LED lights) are allot less power hungry, but they can be a real pain in the ass to properly diffuse.

1024x768 might be a little low for anything over 12 inches.  It would be tolerable though.

On car auidio/video forums Im constantly refered to Kontron's LVDS controller.  Supposedly its a pretty well rounded all in one controller that depending on the model can take almost any signal and spit it out through LVDS WITH backlight support.

Hello, I am interested in converting my old first-gen 1.87 GHz MacBook Pro into a Cintiq/Modbook-like tablet PC.

I hope to use either an 9x12 Wacom Intuos 3 or an 8x12.8 Intuos 4 to do so.

The three reply rule has been suspended for the moment since our move and some security upgrades.  Looking good so far.   
You should now be able to post/reply/start polls etc. straight away.

=============NOW  HEAR THIS!!!!===============


We had something of a problem with spam for a while, both in topics and (more annoyingly) as PMs.
It's a problem of balance, do we put in an extra layer of security, probably wait for Mod approval on registering, or for the first few posts, or come up with some other scheme?

So we came up with another scheme.

When you register you are put into the membergroup "newbie".

The newbie can reply to an existing thread, and can send 1 personal message, (the minimum I can make it).
Once the newbie makes 1 reply they are upgraded to "new poster" and can reply as much as they like and can make their own topics.


Lets see how this new scheme works out.

Title: Re: REPLY REQUIRED BEFORE ALLOWED TO CREATE A THREAD
Post by: Drewid on June 10, 2011, 08:07:31 PM
How do you do that then?


Title: Re: REPLY REQUIRED BEFORE ALLOWED TO CREATE A THREAD
Post by: bernard on June 11, 2011, 04:04:31 AM
You have to connect your serial tablet and run a "terminal" software (like hyperterminal,  realterm, etc).  Find the port the tablet is on (COM1, COM2, ...) and set the baud rate speed to "9600 bauds". Type  ~#  and you should see a readable string with the tablet number and rom version.  This, I believe, works with all Wacom serial consumer tablets I tried so far (UD-xxxx-R, GD-xxxx-R and XD-xxxx-R, and it I suspect it would work with any model that finishes with "-R"). Serial TabletPCs are different.

Note that the Wacom driver might be keeping the COM port opened and thus you might not be able to access it. (I am not 100% sure of this)

The theory is that there are different versions of the UD-xxxx internal ROM firmware. It might be worth upgrading to the latest version (if that could work out).

@Timeship:  My USB key alone is 16Gb.

Yeah -- we should fix the learning curve. Yeah, I suppose we could move everything to wall.fm (yipes!). ...and I suppose we could do tons of other things as well. ::)

Quote
BTW, how can I send you a PDF file of the LCD Graphics Tablet I'm trying to make in China for mass production? It looks like an Intuous4 with a built-in LCD, but with the rounded edges of HP 500 Slate ;-)
Why would you want to do that? I am not a China mass producer.  ;D   

Jokes aside, I suppose your PDF is over 500kb and is not allowed as an attachment? (you know, that very-well-hidden "Additional Options..." expand link below the text area when editing a post).  Hum.. If too big, well in that case, just host it somewhere where they give out 10Gb of free space and link it.

Tell me more about this project of yours.

i recently got an ud-1218-R from university as old model, which they got rid off.

now i'm stuck with this thing and trying to get it working :) best forum ever for tablet hacking :)


Title: Re: REPLY REQUIRED BEFORE ALLOWED TO CREATE A THREAD
Post by: bernard on July 17, 2011, 04:59:51 PM
Welcome nuit!

Oh!  UD-1218-R is quite a beast --  you have the cable and pen?  If you like/want to solder, you can think of converting to USB (http://forum.bongofish.co.uk/index.php?topic=1930.0) -- or else, just try to follow how some people got them working with more recent OSes. (which OS are you using it with?  If windows, is it 32 bit or 64 bits?)


Title: Re: REPLY REQUIRED BEFORE ALLOWED TO CREATE A THREAD
Post by: nuit on July 17, 2011, 09:31:09 PM
the cable is a problem right now...i got nothing, no cable, no pen the first week... but i lend a pen from a penabled thinkpad from my brother which seems to work fine. as far as i can tell from the led blinking.

currently i'm using a windows xp 32 bit system, or a linux kernel 2.6.35, both should work fine with this tablet.

i tried soldering the cable tanasse (?) talked about. the power is working fine, but i got no response from the tablet itself, i can't even ping it to get the model number. it seems to run a 12300. thinking of soldering it to usb, but first want to try it out on the serial port
i can't get the cable working for the serial port right now. stuck with ideas.
for smd soldering i would have to go to uni, don't have the equipment here.
are you any further with the protocol this thing sends out?


Title: Re: REPLY REQUIRED BEFORE ALLOWED TO CREATE A THREAD
Post by: bernard on July 17, 2011, 09:55:58 PM
We figured it all out. 

It starts talking at 9600 bauds (normally) -- I say normally because it is possible to configure the board to talk at another baud rate and use another protocol. But chances are, it is at 9600 after powerup and talks at the "normal" protocol.  (After that, you can boost the speed to higher).

No need to solder SMDs to convert it to USB (well you need to desolder one SMD).  Just pick a Teensy (16$US) and hook that up.

12300 is not a standard baud rate.  Probably you meant 19200 -- the only baud rates are 9600, 19200 and 38400 (N-8-1) ..  But I doubt a UD board can go 38400.

Watch out that the cable pinouts is *totally* non-standard. Check your connections. Tannassi's build pinout is good. Also you can check the mini table in the UD-xxxx USB conversion post, you see the cable pinout there too. Also watch out that some handshake serial signals must be properly set for the board to start talking.  For the pen, yes, you can pick a tabletPC one -- the axiotron ones (10$US on ebay or its "grip" version) works like a charm.

Hello all!!!

I'm feeling the sickness... and I'm about to start building something! I really don't know very well the size of my project or the materials to use but I hope I can find help here...  ::)

I'm a bit of resolution freak so the minimum for my build was set at 1680 x 1050 and the perfect would be about 1920 x 1200...

First step is to find the main parts: the tablet (L or XL intuos3 or 4) and the lcd (bought from a new monitor for the XL or just the lcd panel for the L).

Wish me luck...  :-[

OK..  I'm here..  Been lurking for awhile. BUT now it's build time.

I have a GD-1218-R and because I have just purchased a new monitor I know have a LG W2234S LCD to use.

I think I may be lucky with this one, looking at schematics and stuff it appears that both the Power board and driver board have long leads and FFC's..

Anyway now I've said hello I will make a build thread..  :)

ALSO...

Does anyone know of a UK stockist for the Teensy..  I can't seam to find any??   :(

Hello everyone,   :D
Another new member coming in. Had this site in my bookmarks for some time, I like all the DIY cintiq builds but didnt have the courage yet to start one.
I have collected some nice intuos 1 tablets (and different stylus pens) over the years and because of sticking with the intuos1 series I'm now stuck with a not 100% usable tablet in win7 (64bit), at least for the serial connection one's  (I have 2x GD-0405-R a GD-0912-R and a GD-1218-U  ;D )
So before even trying to attempt a cintiq conversion I want to mod the A4 tablet into a usb model and maybe a A5 model.
I have read some but not all threads and might as well ask some things  here:
- the teensy 2.0 is the only hardware I need for this mod ?
- does the teensy mod work with other than standard stylus devices? I read that in the beginning this was the case, but maybe not anymore (I also got an inking pen and some 4d mouses but I'm not going to use the last one)

And...thanks for having this board and all the work you guys already put in, much appreciated !

@Mich:  For a "serial" conversion, a Teensy 2.0 is really the only board required.  This does not account for basic soldering equipement, bunch of small wires (easily found from a network patch cable). Check out the conversion threads -- especially the GD-* ones. We now support most devices.

halooooooooowwwwww..... There.... My build is almost there.... I have the whole thing up and running but with some jittering. I thought I could build it without asking any question because I think everything is in this "forum-manual".

Nevertheless, I already busted one line of the monitor trying to fix the jittering, and that's enough to tell myself: !enough is enough, you need some help here!

Hi guys, I'm an out-of-practice doodler who never got over the paper-pen disconnect of normal tablets, so I'm going to make a DIY Cintiq.

I've known about this site for some years and am finally to the point where I can get ahold of the materials needed. That, and the amount of drooling I was doing over Wei's iTab (http://weistudio.com/mac_com.htm) was getting a bit unhealthy. I'll put up a build log shortly, and I'm looking forward to getting through all this!  :)

I came across this forum in what appears to be a very similar route and I have been reading many of the threads and I've been very interested in the many different yet similar DIY cintiq build logs as well as successful builds.  I do not have an electronic back ground, but this forum is very interesting to me.  I'm also wondering who had even thought about stripping a monitor down and then laying it on top of a tablet.  Well anyways, I've been taking notes and figuring out which laptop monitor I want to use.  One area that I'm concerned about is doing a ribbon cable extension ,  I can see that this would be a show stopper.

 Hi  ??? looks like the place to be
just looking for guidence got a Wacom Graphics Graphire Tablet A4  (12x9)and pen on ebay cheap, i have several 13.3 MacBooks with various problems,
one in particular wont recognise its built in keyboard but works ok from usb external keyboard,
i would like to marry the Wacom Graphics Graphire and the MacBook to make a modbook,
put the wacom pcb under the macbooks lcd,
i know the  Graphire  PCB is bigger than the MacBook so a new case will have to be built /old one adjusted
what are my options what should i watch out for
not afraid to experiment


Title: Re: REPLY REQUIRED BEFORE ALLOWED TO CREATE A THREAD
Post by: bernard on November 21, 2012, 03:43:42 PM
welcome buddymarvelous,

The usual stuff that's repeated all over this forum. Maybe look for posts with Mac laptops to see how they dealt with stuff. One big question you are going to need to answer is: Are you going to revive the laptops or just pull out the screen to convert into a monitor (and to connect to another machine)? If the latter, then you will need a LVDS driver board.

Yes, you will need a bigger case for sure.  One reason is not only the wacom PCB, but also the unfolding of the LCD circuitry (extremely delicate). Compare the (precise) screen sizes vs. tablet active area using the Simtiq Planner. (measure the X and Y with a ruler to be sure, every mm counts). Typically you want the LCD to be equal or smaller. Else you will have unreachable areas. If you intend to start doing experiments, then start a new build thread on your own.

You want to check for jitter before going too deep into the build. Graphires is not the best for jitter, but this does not mean it will be the case with yours. The best is to try it out.  If you have a way to operate the tablet and the screen, then open them and stack them (with something in between to not short circuit them of course).  (Note: you do not need to have the tablet connected to the same laptop, you can check if the mouse cursor is stable from another machine).


Title: Re: REPLY REQUIRED BEFORE ALLOWED TO CREATE A THREAD
Post by: bernard on November 21, 2012, 03:55:46 PM
...btw the "real" Modbooks use a Wacom digitizer similar to what is found inside TabletPCs. You do not need to change your case. It is very thin, the PCB is exactly the size of the active area. It "slips" inside the LCD.

I know you already own the Graphire 4 and the MacBooks. For that, it is worth the try indeed.


Title: Re: REPLY REQUIRED BEFORE ALLOWED TO CREATE A THREAD
Post by: buddymarvelous on November 21, 2012, 07:05:13 PM
Thanks, will be using the faulty logic board, ram, hard drive  ldc, battery, from a macbook

>>> New members must do a reply before being allowed to create a new thread. <<<

You can reply to this thread to say hello.

We had something of a problem with spam for a while, both in topics and (more annoyingly) as PMs.
It's a problem of balance, do we put in an extra layer of security, probably wait for Mod approval on registering, or for the first few posts, or come up with some other scheme?
Hello


So we came up with another scheme.

When you register you are put into the membergroup "newbie".

The newbie can reply to an existing thread, and can send 1 personal message, (the minimum I can make it).
Once the newbie makes 1 reply they are upgraded to "new poster" and can reply as much as they like and can make their own topics.


Lets see how this new scheme works out.

Hey all,
I'm in the process of trying to get a digitizer and LCD from my old Toshiba Tecra M4 working. The video card on this POS tabletPC burned out on me not once but twice. 

New to soldering and electrical engineering stuff but I've built several desktop computers so have a basic understanding of computers in general.

Using info found in this forum, I was able to get both HID_listen and Realterm to see input from the pen and was actually able to get the cursor moving with the pen using Intuos2 drivers but the cursor was super slow (2-5 sec lag).  Probably driver issue (Windows 8 64 bit).

I killed my Teensy 2.0 with a crappy soldering iron (it wasn't lack of skill at all, I swear  ;D) so I'm waiting for another. 

I'll post pics when I can.

Good luck with that!  Good thing you got the tablet connected! 2 sec lag?? Yipes. Sonething is really wrong. So you have lots of high speed device on the USB bus?  Next thing to try is to see the debug templates running to check on errors.

Hello, I stumbled upon this place after looking for a way to use my old, outdated HP Tablet PC as an input device.  I've grown tired of the 15+ minute wait to open or save Photoshop files, and the lag that fills the space between those two tasks is frustrating;  Especially worse when I know I have a desktop perfectly capable of handling my needs.  Hopefully with a little help, if anyone here is willing, I can turn this old laptop into a Cintiq.  Thanks!

Howdy all!

I'm a college guy going for his Bachelors of Computer Science and Engineering, and during my down time I dream up grand schemes and designs that I usually don't have the time (or money) for. :P

I found this place whilst looking for information on LCD/touchscreens, and I have a question in particular that I'll ask later (once I have photos).

Thanks!

Hello everyone!

Can't remember how I found bongofish, but I became very intrigued by the prospect of building my own Cintiq, which was furthered by the fact that I managed to pick up a cheap Huion tablet as a backup/replacement for my old Intuo3 medium. Hope to get something working within the next month.

Post by: procersapientiae on February 19, 2015, 08:55:43 AM
Hello Bongofish, just another guy  that's been lurking around the forums in preparation of a build. I've been following reading the successful builds (and some of the unsuccessful builds), and have settled on starting with an attempt at duplicating bumhee34's XL build in "budget-mode" for now.

I've also been looking over Aerendraca and Bumhee34's Retina-class builds and been wondering if a 4K build based on the ~15" 4K laptop panels would be worthwhile as a "non-budget-mode" build. (Would retrofitting an old penabled be a good idea for this?)

Rather than taking the multilayered acrylic approach, I may try using minimal materials by 3D-printing some supports for the acrylic layers. Advice along the way is welcome.

I probably won't actually post anything big for a couple weeks due to "life" but I'm definitely excited.

Nice to meet everyone!


Clarification, is it "Bong o' Fish" or "Bongo Fish"? I prefer assume the latter. Either way, weird forum name.


Title: Re: REPLY REQUIRED BEFORE ALLOWED TO CREATE A THREAD
Post by: Aerendraca on February 19, 2015, 09:13:48 AM
Hi procersapientiae, welcome!

Interesting idea to use a 4k panel and an old penabled tablet, I honestly have no idea if you could do this, I mean, I suppose in principle you can but someone would have to give it a go - *wink*wink*nudge*nudge*

3D printed minimal case huh, I like it. Can't wait to see how you get on!

Oh, and I think it's Bongo-Fish, at least I hope it is! Bong (of) Fish is grim.

Hi ... I have been visiting the forum very often recently .. trying to read as much as I can .. eventually I decided to become a member .. it's a nice place and I'm very happy to be a part of it.

Now I have a 6*8 inch tablet which i wish to use. I know the size is small compared to what is usual around here but I want to keep my first attempt small. I think I need a 10 inch screen with 4:3 aspect ratio but here is the problem. I can't find any of them locally. I tried ebay but didn't find anything (maybe I don't know how to search)

so is there such a screen or should I get a bigger tablet ?

I hope I can find help >>> thanks

Rather than 10", look for 9.7" - plenty of 4:3 screen have that particular size. Beware: sdmall screens are nastier to strip.

Hi folks, I'm Gavin. I'll be making a macbook (2009) Yosemite pen/wacom tablet and thought I'd use the awesome community here for reference and consultation while making my "macwacomator slate".

I'm an animator and game developer who's decided to fix the absence of a dedicated portable animation tablet by going the route of making my own. Mostly I need a tablet that can run Yosemite (and current adobe/comparable software for animation) and not require a secondary input (need to be able to draw directly on-screen for simplicity's sake [oxymoron?]).

for more info I'll update this with a link to the thread when I start : ______

The idea is to enable animating wherever, whenever, however, and with on professional software (so it can be taken to/from work with ease).

I'm super excited to gut the old thing and get my hands dirty making a portable solution to wacomating on the go!

Welcome DavidK.

There are at least 2 ways to build DIY Cintiq-like tablet. Before start, you need to make important decision:
1. Buy EMR tablet, good LCD screen and combine it together.
2. Buy screen from tablet-PC.

First way may give better results (like lilt angle response), much bigger screen (tablets and laptops are limited to about 15') but it's more complicated.
Second is easier because screen and digitizer are already fitted together.
